Tools like ping, traceroute, lookup, whois, finger, netstat, ipconfig, and port scanners are available on nearly every operating system you can get your hands on. They’re used for everything from troubleshooting a connection to looking up information.
Unfortunately, all of the Whois lookup tools available don't support all domain extensions. There's also the problem of not always retrieving Whois data from the authoritative servers and relying on a 3rd-party like "whois-servers.net".
In response to this, because I was not satisfied with the tools out there already, I set out on a mission to build the best Whois lookup tool in the world. It is free and accessible from any computer through your browser at http://gwhois.org/
What's this all about ??Set-Cookie persist-identification=2509762001.20480.0000; expires=Tue, 03-Jun-2014 20:20:20 GMT; path=/
Are you saying that you say that HTTP header when visiting my website? I am not aware of my server setting a Set-Cookie HTTP header.
I am not sure if that is related or not, however.
If you can point to which page you were on when you saw that HTTP header, I will gladly look into it further.
Hmm. I am still not able to reproduce the issue/behavior.
Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can help you out further.

I'm following this article with great interest. You see I'm originally an XP man (currently betrothed to WIN8.1.) I desperately miss my old time favorites, especially "SamSpade". Try as I may it just won't run under 8.1. So my search for current replacements.
I was drawn to a certain utility I thought to be a Sysinternals utility. I downloaded all their stuff, but didn't find "Whois - Network Tools" I very much want to acquire it for my collection.
Here's the Pic. Well the Add an Image or drag/drop didn't work.
